About Wag Ur Tail Dog Training

Now Servicing Northern Virginia

Meet Mike

Mike Morrison is a United States Army Veteran who served in Iraq. His time there eventually caused Mike to experience symptoms of PTSD that put his Army career to an end. During treatment, Mike saw that a fellow veteran was experiencing noticeable improvement with the help of a service dog. Mike had tried medication for PTSD, but he didn’t like the side effects, and he was curious to see if a service dog would be helpful to him.

Mike started doing research and was led to a program that allowed veterans to train their own service dogs. Mike had grown up with dogs and had always had a passion to work with them. The service-dog training program would facilitate healing from PTSD and allow him to achieve his dream of working with dogs on a full-time basis.

We service Fredericksburg and surrounding areas.

  The staff at Wag Ur Tail has been so friendly this far. I haven’t started my training sessions but I am looking forward to a more well behaved dog.

  It was so helpful working with Mike for help with our Sasha. She progressed rapidly and very well with his assistance. All of his suggestions and directions helped to change our dogs guardedness and shyness and House, leash training very nicely and pretty rapidly. She is so much more fun when we can now do things confidently with her. Mike was patient , kind and very professional. It was a very positive experience for our pet as well as us. Thank you again Mike. I will keep you in mind when friends ask about Sasha’s good behaviors. I wouldn’t hesitate to make a referral.

Our Happy Clients

“Mike has helped me not to be anxious and how to take control of my puppy. He answers emails right away and never tires of my questions . . . In the two lessons we have had so far, my puppy can go up and down stairs, comes when called (still a work in progress), will walk right with me off his leash, and stays when we are outside.”

Leanne Southland

“Mike and his family were great to work with, he was very responsive with every question I had while my dog was at the two week training course. They did a fantastic job with Steven (my dog) and I now know that he understands what I am saying to him since he is doing all of it (sit, place, off, along with a few others). The main thing I asked Mike to help Steven with was to please leave my cats alone. He was constantly chasing them around the house. Now they are not only able to be in the same room together but can actually be by each other. Mike was great and I would happily use his services again, if I was to get another dog.”

“Mike did such an amazing job with Dixie. She was a wild little beagle and now with the help of Mike she is a well mannered member of our family. Choosing Mike was a great investment! I would happily use his services again, if I was to get another dog.”
